A W Bates:

Though a Sky box has an Ethernet socket, you can only use it for their 'catch-up' services if you have an active subscription. I checked that on my Sky+ box. So if you want to stop your Sky subscription you will need an alternative, perhaps as suggested by MikeB. The Sky box will not be much use for anything other than viewing live free-to-air channels only. Your will not be able to watch any recording you already have nor to make any new ones.

Belinda: Your Sky box is capable of receiving all free to air satellite channels (which includes near all of the channels available on Freeview) although you won't have any ability to record. Which FTA channels are not working?
